I'm not sure I understand what exactly you did.


Did you get the most current HP Factory BIOS at http://tinyurl.com/orkr9ct


Did you follow HP's instructions



1. Obtain a formatted USB Key media.

2. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on a system running Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, or Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and change to that directory.

3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded SoftPaq file: Simply double click on the SPxxxxx.exe file and follow the installation wizard to complete the SoftPaq installation process. At the end of a successful installation of the SoftPaq a web page will automatically appear to provide you with the different methods for restoring and/or upgrading the firmware on the system.

4. After the USB Key is created, you may delete the downloaded file if you wish.

5. Insert this USB Key into the USB Key port of the system to be updated and power the system on to boot to the USB Key.


Flashing the BIOS should give you pretty much the same screen as Flashing the previous Version of the BIOS did in

Hi again,


I did also looked at this webpage,



But same result:


When booting on the USB-stick I get "Missing Operating System"


The Video refrences HP ProLiant N40L MicroServer Build and BIOS Modification Revisited -- I've never had a problem following the instructions in that Blog Posting.  I have not tried flashing the new SP64420 or it's Mod but it shouldn't be different.
